Trivium cover Heaven Shall Burn’s “Implore The Darken Sky”

Posted by on January 18, 2023


Trivium have surprised their fans by releasing a cover of Heaven Shall Burn’s “Implore the Darken Sky.” The cover is featured on a split 7” that the group will be selling throughout their European tour


Vocalist/guitarist Matthew K. Heafy comments:

“In the early days of Trivium, back when we were discovering the many great genres and flavors of heavy music, I knew about the classic greats, I knew about extreme metal, but never before had I heard what HSB was doing. Heaven Shall Burn’s Whatever It May Take album was my first introduction to their brand of metalcore. This fusion of hardcore ethos and metal sounds blew my mind. ‘Implore the Darken Sky’ is not only my favorite HSB song, but the one that taught me so much about a sound that needed to be injected into Trivium.”
